Cloud Website Hosting Explanation
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent groups of high-end servers. Each separate service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud hosting system.
The massive cloud hosting fraud. Very widespread today.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the hosting CP too.
One server-based Control Panels
Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single server only. All hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create a custom CP that will run perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Universal-Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
